I love this cookbook, mostly for the photographs, which make me drool.

Marcel Desaulniers is a chocolate genius. He used to have a show on tv, but I haven't seen him in several years.

When it comes to baking with chocolate, nothing tops the recipes contained here.

The Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake is a family favorite. I have attempted most of the recipes and while they may be intimidating, the instructions are very precise making each recipe doable. Just be sure to give yourself plenty of time. You may not need every tool listed to complete the recipe, it may make some steps a bit more complicated.

Remember, baking is fun! and the eating is even better.

As I paged through this book I started to drool. I can't wait to try so many of these recipes. While at first glance they look really involved, but when you take a closer look you realize they aren't too bad. I just hope that the actual product lives up to these great pictures! This is how a recipe book should be.

Well. What can one say about the best darn chocolate-themed cookbook ever? David and I discovered Desaulnier's restaurant, Trellis, on our first anniversary trip to Williamsburg. The dinner was blah.
